This is a book club that focuses on queer literature, from the trashy to the highbrow. We read long tomes, graphic novels, short stories and even non-fiction, whatever takes our fancy. The aim of the group is to celebrate non-normative gender and sexuality, bring queer culture to life, learn about queer history and make new friends. You don’t have to identify as anything to join this group.
We usually meet on the first Wednesday of every month. Each meetup we discuss the chosen book, have a free-for-all natter and hold a vote to decide the book for the next-but-one meeting. This gives everyone 2 months to read each book. We have a booklist that has been compiled by members over the years, but any book can be put forward for the vote. Book suggestions are always welcome. :)
For each meetup there is an optional contribution of £1 per person to the cost of running the group. **Out of courtesy for people who are on the waiting lists for meetups that are full, please change your RSVP as soon as possible if you are unable to come along. After three 'no-shows' we will remove you from the list.**
If you are on the waiting list, DON'T WORRY. There is always a flurry of RSVP changes in the week or so leading up to the meeting and it's unlikely that you won't be able to attend if you want to. In the meantime, enjoy reading the book!
